I have had frequency all my life (a hereditary thing methinks) and I was referred to the bladder clinic a couple of years ago and saw the specialist there until it was closed. She mentioned that my symptoms seemed to be consistent with Interstitial Cystitis which seems probable.
Anyway, some nights I get terrible frequency, I'm talking six or seven times on the run, do a trickle, think I've emptied but then a slight turn in bed and up I go again, and this performance can be repeated as I say about half a dozen times and thereby affecting sleep. So I had a visit to the doctor booked last week and mentioned it along with all my other stuff, lol, and she's prescribed me some tablets called Tolterodine Tartrate. She said that the main side effect is a dry mouth and best not to read the list of side-effects but it's too late! I have. And now I am very reluctant to take them. I would rather have the frequency than risk the side-effects. Some of the ratios aren't that high either eg 1 in 100 may experience this or that (unlike others where it is eg 1 in 10,000).
Just wondered if anyone else has any experience of this medication?
